Penrith’s Local, Independent, After School Tuition Centre

Inspiring tuition for children of all ages and abilities

Why choose The Tuition Place for your child?

One of the leading after school tutoring centre’s in Penrith

Most tuition centres are franchises. The Tuition Place is independent and local. This gives you three important advantages:

  1. Teaching methods and resources are tailored for the children of the Penrith area, not dictated by a franchisor from far away.
  2. If you have special requirements, things can be adapted for you quickly.
  3. The tuition is more affordable, because a big chunk of what you pay doesn’t go straight to a franchisor.

RAZ-Kids is one of our fantastic English programs that focuses on students' comprehension. Students are able to select a book of their choice from a range of fabulous fiction and non-fiction texts. They then read along with a voice over, or can tackle the text independently! Their comprehension of the text is then tested by a short quiz.
